We select the right ecommerce platform and associated technology such as order management (OMS), search and navigation, product information (PIM), digital assets (DAM), analytics, content management (CMS) and CRM.
Having delivered over 40 platform selections in the past four years, each with good results, we have evolved a specialised ecommerce platform selection service to help clients choose the right technologies for their business, covering both the core ecommerce solution and the many "bolt-on" applications which can significantly enhance ecommerce performance. We are well placed to recommend the best solution as we are independent/technology neutral, we understand the critical ecommerce requirements (we have listed the top 450), we have a deep understanding of all of the leading platforms and bolt-on applications, and, as an expert integrator, we understand the implementation challenges.
There are two variants of our approach:
- Rapid platform selection (typically 4-5 weeks long), where we develop a full set of functional requirements, review with a shortlist of platform vendors, and recommend the best fit technology.
- Full platform selection (typically 8-10 weeks long), where we additionally send out an RFP, receive formal responses from vendors, arrange product demonstrations of agreed scenarios, and evaluate and score each vendor.
We have selected ecommerce platforms for retailers, brands, distributors and manufacturers in the UK, US, Germany, Italy, France, Denmark, Sweden, Australia and Malaysia. Retail sectors include department stores, luxury goods, grocery, general merchandise, fashion, telecoms, health and beauty, electrical, entertainment, and toys.
